After several months of research and graphic design we’re happy to present you with our infographic The Future of Money: New Lenses of Wealth. It represents the aggregation of our research on emerging marketplaces, platforms, tools, initiatives and opportunities for the new economy.
The graphic underwent numerous iterations. The style for the graphic was based directly on the title design from the video and the design of the Open Innovation Certificate. The icons for creation, storage and access were designed using the isometric grid of the certificate. The categories and links to initiatives began as a huge messy mindmap, which then was refined into a list using piratepad, which then was printed out and shuffled around on a table as a paper prototype. The prototype was used to organize the final positioning of all the categories.
